The War Within Your Heart

Mark E. Shaw

We can find victory over sin and temptation when we know our own specific sinful tendencies, the power of the enemy, and what he uses to tempt us. Knowing our enemy’s plan of attack can prepare our hearts to map out a strategy for overcoming temptation. Jesus was tempted in the same three basic ways in which we are tempted:

  • We can do what we want (Lust of the Flesh)
  • We can have what we want (Lust of the Eyes)
  • We can be what we want (Pride of Life)

Here you will find the biblical antidotes for each of these powerful temptations, and learn to be victorious over the temptations of the heart.
